of washington so give me your long-term expectations as well. >> i think the economy is doing quite well, you know, despite the fiscal cliff, and even thought the worries about taxes are affecting investors, they are not really affecting general economic activity, so the good news is the economy's got some sort of head of steam going, so from that perspective if they can do a deal relatively quickly, thin think we're in good shape. >> come on, if you look at the of a dense measures, they are turning down and measures of durable good orders, turning down. our question is housing and recoveries and they account for almost 80% of the economy. you're right, the capital goods orders are hurting, mostly because businesses are uncertain, i agree but general consumer spending, confidence aside. consumers are spending. that's the good news. >> the good news is they are not focused on the fiscal cliff the way businesses are, but at some point everything comes home to roost. sentiment is up, spending is up, but are we spending our way into oblivion and then we're going to find out oops? >> i doubt it. >

stepped down. i've been in washington for 30 years. i understand the attack game. but she was attacked for her qualifications and she was bludgeoned over benghazi before we have any information that's going to come from ambassador pickerring. i thought it was unfair and mean spirited. this is the old boys network. you can tell i don't like it. susan is more than qualified to hold the position. i wish the president would have gone forward and women like myself and perhaps some good men like david would have found reasons to support her. i understand there's a partisan issue with this but this is a very well qualified woman and she should have had the job. >> so you're saying he should have fought for her? >> absolutely. >> does this mean that the benghazi story is something that he wants to put away, so embarrassing that he wants to put to bed? maybe there is some kind of understanding that if she steps off the stage, she books the blood sacrifice and guess to some other job, now there are fewer questions asked because something went terribly wrong. four people are dead and -- >> you he

and effort of reining in spending and -- in washington. i'm proud of our efforts to introduce the first bipartisan budget in a generation. i want to thank steve latourette and jim cooper for their efforts and leadership on this. i also want to thank congressman quigley to co-sponsor and advance this legislation, which is based on the bipartisan simpson-bowles framework. this budget ultimately failed to pass the house, but i remain proud of our bipartisan effort for which the u.s.a. today called us the brave 38. and i believe this type of thoughtful independent leadership that this is the type of leadership that the 10th district deserves. i also believe that the courage and leadership shown by the house to take on the difficult, but necessary position of reining entitlement spending deserves recognition. we know that medicare stands out as a primary driver of our debt in the future. and unfortunately, this future is not so far off. with one of medicare's key programs scheduled to go bankrupt in the next 10 to 12 years, sustaining the status quo means dramatic cuts down the road on the v

in washington since the offers officers were first treated. with respect you could start to run up to christmas here. it could take up to three days to get something through the senate. republicans have to sell it to house republicans. democrats have to be on board there. there are a number of different little concerns that happen, it and we are not even close to a deal. tracy: in that same local interview he had with the minnesota radio station, he said that spending cuts have to be paired with tax revenue increases. do we know what he's talking about? is he talking about a dollar for dollar cannot? >> we don't know what the proportion is. we have republicans saying that the president had previously promised to do 31 or four to one in tax revenues, the smaller part being the tax revenues and spending cuts, we know the white house had reduced the demand from 1.6 trillion to 1.4 trillion. they said that it was willing to do $600 billion in spending cuts. the republican offer had been $800 billion in revenue. again, it is how you structure the things and not just numbers. you have republicans wan

straight to our top story, and that is the haggling in washington, d.c. president obama's meeting with house speaker john boehner this hour. john, what should we expect? >> we expect the meeting to last something less than an hour between the speaker and the president of the united states. a republican leadership aide told me the meeting is taking place because a shakeup is required in budget talks, given the inflexibility of the white house. question is going to be, what is that shakeup? the speaker wants and republicans have been the demanding more details from the white house on potential cuts and entitlement programs. the white house has shown no willingness to go further than they've already gone and they are winning this argument in terms of public opinion. so, another possibility for a shakeup is for republicans to some how give ground and we'll see whether that happens on decoupling top tax rates, 98% of american families. we're going to have to see what happens and if we hear from john boehner and president obama after this meeting which will probably only do if some brea
